At his school Ace has been learning about Martin Luther King Jr. in preparation for MLK day next week. He was telling me that Martin Luther King wanted freedom and how he was the President.
I corrected him, "No, he was an important leader, but he was never the President."
Ace, with a puzzled look on his face, answered, "Oh... well he looks like a President."
And I realized, that, although I may not agree with everything Barak Obama did or does, he is changing forever what a president looks like to a new generation of kids, and that is pretty great.
